The 2023 Festival loop will be 6km long and has approximately 60 meters of elevation gain per lap. The Festival loop is very similar to the 2019 course, but will cross legendary bridge, Hands Bridge. The trail is a mixture of fast double and flowy single track. There are 2 climbs that will test riders. The first climb is up the road about 700 meters into the loop. The second climb is after Hands Bridge and is a gradual climb out of the river valley.

The Festival has riders of all ages and abilities. If you are a fast rider, please notify slower riders by calling out "passing on your left" or "passing on your right" . Please be courteous to each other and please have patience through the single track sections as it is sometimes harder to pass slower riders in the single track.
Each team must have 1 rider on the course at all times. Only 1 rider from your team is permitted to be on course at a time.
Riders must use caution entering the Exchange Area and obey all signs. Team mates must tag hands in the exchange area when there is a change in who will be on course.
We will be closing the course with 15 minutes left on the clock. No riders will be permitted to start a new lap after the clock shows 15 minutes or less.
